Hi Team

I have found a site with several technical calculators and I use them regularly. Rather than go on line each time to use them (and risk finding the site closed at some time in the future) is it possible to download the relevant pages?

Cheers

Have you tried doing this:

File > Save As & that should save the web page to your computer.

Hope this helps :)

What about the program Sweep suggested when you first asked this question (http://pressf1.pcworld.co.nz/showthread.php?p=910976#post910976)?

Webreaper still works here but I also don't use it much.

You can get an offline copy but then you also should not try to download a whole site like MS New Zealand for example.

what about saving as an archive? Or make available offline?

Trying to download a server-side tool won't work, as you'll simply get the tool's interface and output instead, rather than the tool itself.

Try looking at the source code, which may have details/names commented in the codes. Then search online for contact, or contact the site's owners/web masters for specifics.

Could you post a link to this calculator site?

1: This is one site (http://www.midnightscience.com/formulas-calculators.html#formulas9) and 2: This is the other (http://www.kusashi.com/series-capacitors.php) either one would be good, but both would be better! :D

The first one appears to be JS based, so you should be able to just save the webpage using your favourite web browser and the calculators should still work.

The second one looks like it's server-side so you won't be able to "save" that to use offline unfortunately.

I tried it Jen, but was unsuccessful, then that calculator site died and it took me some time to find another.

Sorry, I should have answered you earlier but had other issues of the plumbing kind to deal with and they kinda took precedence as we were fast running out of trees and bushes to go behind. :yuck:

All fixed now, wish computers were that straightforward.

Hey Billy

Stu told you what to do 15mins after you started the thread.
Why do you bother to post if you are just going to ignore suggestions.
File/Save as saves both the sites to your computer in a usable state.

So how did you fix it?

An additional way to this is 'Right Click' on the page to find 'SAVE AS' (in Vista64) and to put it where we want. However, this works only with FireFox and Google Chrome. IE may need Select & copy/Paste process.
